  • Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over high heat. Place the pineapple slices in the pan, and cook for a couple of minutes on each side, to slightly soften the pineapple and obtain grill marks. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Split the burger buns in half, and lightly toast them in the grill pan.
  • Pile the barbequed chicken on the bun, topping with the grilled pineapple, and coleslaw if desired.
